Chuy’s Green Sauce Recipe

You know the feeling – you’re at Chuy’s and the waiter brings forth the chips and salsa. Your mouth begins to water, you know what’s coming. They place the Holy Grail of salsa in front of you – the creamy jalapeño. Your eyes grow wide as you quickly grab a chip. You dip the chip in the creamy jalapeño sauce and get the perfect amount on there as you slowly bring the chip to your mouth. Once the salsa touches your taste buds, fireworks of flavor explode in your mouth. Ah, to be able to have some of that right now. Well, what if I told you could recreate this sensation whenever you wanted? That’s right, folks – I have the recipe for this stupendous salsa and I’m here to share it with all of you (you can thank me later).
